The Bishop of Reading

The Bishop of Oxford has nominated Canon Dr Jeffrey John as Bishop of Reading.
His nomination has raised a number of questions. All of these questions circle one central issue, an issue which seems to tax the minds and hearts of a number of people in the Anglican church and elsewhere. People have thought deeply and prayerfully about the issue and have taken a certain point of view: Other people have thought deeply and prayerfully about the issue and have taken an opposing point of view.
The Bishop of Oxford describes the events surrounding the nomination here, with links to related pages at the bottom.

I'm just taking this opportunity to say that I'm pleased to have him as my Bishop, and I hope he'll stay in the post.
